The founder of The Mastering Lab Doug Sax is to remaster Roger Waters albums on to vinyl so that you may hear the albums in their purest glorious form.
Doug was interviewed bywhere he was asked about how vinyl technology had changed.
Doug responded, “As far as the LP is concerned, no. As far as what might feed the LP, yes, because now you might be feeding it from digital files, from high-resolution 192 or 96/24-bit, which supplies a very reliable and consistent source. But surprisingly the only real improvement has ostensibly been going to DMM [Direct Metal Mastering] cutting and that’s had flaws in the past—it never won audiophile support. Now, they’ve apparently fixed the flaws, and they have better copper. But for rock ’n’ roll, for high-energy music? For example, I’m going to be doing the Roger Waters albums on vinyl and they have extraordinary low end, requiring an astonishing amount of vertical modulation. We use up the full depth available on a lacquer master. You can’t do anything like that on DMM. It’s very thin; you can’t go deep. For that kind of thing it could be an absolute joke.”
